1. Get Connected
There are two ways to get online at the university: wireless and wired. If you want to connect a phone, tablet or laptop computer, then a wireless connection will probably suit you best. Wired connections are faster and more stable. You will need an Ethernet cable and access to a network socket.
2. Install Free Software
Remember, wherever you are working from, it is vital that you have antivirus software and all the latest security patches installed on your computer, and the university can provide this software free of charge.
Additionally, you get free access to Office Online and can claim a 65% discount on Adobe Creative Cloud software.
All computers at the university have printing capabilities, but you can also print from your own laptop, using the mobile printing service.

Don't have your own laptop? You can either borrow one from our self-service lockers in the Aldrich or Falmer Libraries or from the helpdesk at St Peters House Library. If you wish to buy your own, you can benefit from discounts as a Brighton University student. The computer store has a range of equipment and upgrades for purchase.
